08-08-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Lighting Technologies

Mouser provides a new global distribution agreement with Advanced Photonix, a division of OSI Optoelectronics. Advanced Photonix. The company is a global provider of innovative photonics, optoelectronics, and advanced electronic systems delivering high-reliability, high-performance technology. Now available are advanced silicon, InGaAs P-I-N, APD photodiodes and hybrids, and CdS LDR photocells through the agreement.

The compay designs, develops, and fabricates complex photodetectors, emitters and photoresistors. With state-of-the-art, in-house semiconductor fabrication services, it provides the best and most reliable optoelectronics components and subsystems. With many years of experience in optoelectronics, it offers the expertise to develop efficient manufacturing processes that surpass the rigorous standards set by industrial, medical, and defence applications.

The company's UV enhanced silicon photodiode provides a high-performance, cost-effective solution for applications demanding highly sensitive devices in the UV region. The device provides low noise, high shunt resistance, and increased response with an active area diameter of 2.54mm. Red enhanced P-I-N and quadrant silicon photodiodes are offered with numerous features and packages for multiple applications. The devices provide high accuracy with a large active area and low crosstalk, ideal for accurate nulling, centring, or measuring small positional changes. The Blue enhanced P-I-N photodiodes deliver high responsivity, large active area, and low noise. The devices are excellent for high-speed response applications in the blue region of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Its CdS photocells are light-dependent resistors (LDRs) with sensitivity in the visible light region from 400nm to 700nm. The LDRs, offered in various resistances, decrease resistance as the light level increases with efficiency characteristics like those of the human eye.
